It turns out I have rules. This month-long blogging challenge has been bringing them up left and right.
These rules are not only unwritten, but they are also apparently unconscious. I didn’t even know they existed until I violated them!
When considering how I could blog more with ease, many of the ideas I came up with were met with, yeah, but that’s cheating.
Two of the many rules I’ve discovered are:
- Anything you’ve already written doesn’t count. Even if you wrote it yesterday (i.e. writing in advance doesn’t count).
- Ideas you came up with before don’t count.
Isn’t it interesting that things I could do to make it easier don’t count. And, essentially I have to gut out the idea generating and writing on a daily basis. You know, put the challenge in the challenge!
